This is why the iPhone 12 doesn’t support 120Hz. 5G support was the culprit. Apple had to choose between 120Hz and 5G in iPhone 12.
Authoritative tech insider Jon Prosser (Jon Prosser) on his page on the social network Twitter has revealed details of why Apple refused to use screens with a refresh rate of 120 Hz in its new smartphones iPhone 12 or at least in the older model.

We will remind, yesterday he confirmed that 120 Hz screens will not be in any model of the iPhone 12, and later his informants from Apple reported that the only reason why such screens will not be in the iPhone 12 is small batteries and operating time without recharging.
However, he added that there were no problems in terms of hardware capabilities. It’s just that Apple has opted for longer smartphones and 5G.
I was told this is 100% related to battery life. The hardware was more than capable, but 120Hz drains the battery very quickly. 5G does the same. It was basically a choice between 120Hz or 5G and they opted for 5G.
5G is much easier to sell. Yes, Apple fans will love 120Hz, but the average consumer doesn’t care. It is much easier to say “your phone is faster because of 5G” than to show the advantage of a 120Hz screen. But next year, the iPhone will definitely get such a screen. Said “John Prosser”.
John Prosser was the first to give the exact dates for the presentation of the new iPhone SE 2020 smartphone and the MacBook Pro 13 laptop, as well as the expected date of the iPhone 12 announcement, so you can trust this insider.
On the other hand, final details about the iPhone 12 right before the announcement. Improved Face ID, great zoom, and extended battery life are revealed.
sources posted a portion of no less interesting details. According to the leak, Apple is using a “dynamic partition algorithm” that can speed up the Face ID system. The smaller size of the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini will reduce the width of the bangs. This will be achieved by tighter placement of the components of the TrueDepth camera system. In this case, the height of the bangs will increase slightly.
All iPhone 12 models are rumored to feature improved digital zoom capabilities. Apple will achieve this through software improvements. Plus, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will have a much better optical zoom.
A new macro function, or rather a “kind of macro”, is reported. It will use an ultra-wide-angle camera with a 35% aperture increase to improve low-light performance.
PineLeaks believes that for Pro models, the battery life of smartphones without recharging will increase by at least an hour. All future iPhones will have approximately 10% more battery. However, the 5.4-inch smartphone’s battery will last less than the iPhone 11, considering the inclusion of 5G and other features.
As previously reported, all four iPhone 12 models support 5G, but only US models support millimeter waves. Plus, none of these smartphones will have earphones and chargers. All smartphones will receive Super Retina XDR screens, which will be protected by durable glass Ceramic Shield Front Cover.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max will feature a larger main image sensor (47% larger with 1.7μm pixels). All four phones will get Deep Fusion, Smart HDR 3, and improved night mode. It is reported that all models will also be able to record video with Dolby Vision HDR support.
The iPhone 12 mini is expected to hit the US market on November 13, and the standard iPhone 12 is expected to ship on October 23 along with the iPhone 12 Pro. iPhone 12 Pro Max will go on sale on November 20.
